Eight months.  How can it be?  How can my baby be almost 8 months old???  He’s so wonderful and we enjoy (almost) every moment with him, but time is flying by.

Abraham’s always on the move these days.  He loves to jump, army crawl (“walrus crawl” is our term), stand with help, and be in the middle of the action.  He gets up on his knees, but isn’t actually moving anywhere while up on all fours.  I stood him up next to the couch this morning and let him hold himself up.  He got very excited and laughed his sweet laugh–until he fell over!

Abraham’s also enjoying food these days.  He is a great eater with baby food, and likes finger foods.  He does sometimes start coughing and then spit up about 5 Cheerios, but he’s learning!  He’s weighing in at a whopping 20.7 lbs!

“Ba ba” and “ma ma” are Abey-baby’s favorite things to babble and we even hear a “da da” every once in a while.  Charlie and I were wondering why he yells so much, but then we realized Sammy and Eli still yell a lot at 3 and 4 years old, so of course the baby does too.  🙂  We all have a great time together and love seeing Abraham growing into a little person.
